Waterford hires recreation director and community coordinator


WATERFORD – The City of Waterford is pleased to announce and welcome both a new Recreation Director and a Community Coordinator. The Selectmen Board of Directors is excited that these new roles will bring much-needed support activities and resources to residents of all ages in the City of Waterford.

Kayla laird

The role of Recreation Director was filled by Kayla Laird in an innovative collaborative partnership with the Town of Harrison. Capitalizing on the existing relationships between the community and the school system, this exclusive partnership will provide continuity and ongoing community interactions. Kayla will continue, as she has done for years at Harrison, to organize and facilitate traditional sporting activities and events such as baseball, softball, soccer and basketball. With the official addition of Waterford school-aged children to its jurisdiction, Waterford children will have an equal chance of being included in summer recreational programs and special events. In addition, it is expected that there will be increased use of the Sandlot sports facility in Waterford, as well as the ability to electronically register children for sports activities.

Kelley Halter

The position of Community Coordinator has been filled by Kelley Halter, in an exciting new role which will focus on structured activities and events for all members of the Waterford community. Activities such as hiking, crafts, fishing, baking and social engagements are planned. Additionally, Kelley will work closely with existing community groups to strengthen these interactions and benefit from the positive experiences they create.

Waterford is home to a multitude of adults with knowledge, experience and skills that should be shared with our young people. The opportunity to facilitate positive interactions between adults and children in our community is seen as rewarding for all participants. These planned activities within our beautiful community will be an innovative extension of the many efforts underway to promote community spirit and awareness.

Perhaps as exciting as what Kayla and Kelley individually bring to Waterford and its community, is the common path they embark on. The commitment to collaborate and partner in activities across city limits enriches both communities and their residents. Senior lunches and getaway trips are just two examples of combined efforts that are planned to strengthen this innovative joint venture. The Selectmen Board of Directors are deeply delighted to welcome Kayla and Kelley to their roles and look forward to shared experiences and positive community interactions in the future.
